Windows 10 periodically releases updates of different types, some are security, others cumulative and others of applications. But there are others that are updates of the complete system and are a little more delicate, it is ideal and important to always have our equipment updated in order to fully enjoy all the functions and features of Windows 10, but a problem in updates is that Windows 10 manages a system of automatic updates which are not functional for many users because a large percentage of updates require a lot of time..
